Women identified by a married alias only and  for whom a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries.

BOOTH CATHARINE
Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, PA February 16, 1886
A Clymer Pioneer's Death
Sketch of the Life of Mrs. Catharine Southworth, one of the early settlers of the old Township of Westfield.
Westfield, February 12, 1886 - The sad intelligence comes to us of the death of Mrs. Southworth, wife of Dixon Southworth, one of Clymer's most esteemed citizens for many years.  She died January 28, 1886, being 83 years old.  Her maiden name was Catharine Booth.  She was the fourth child of Seth and Thankful Booth - there being five children, only one living - and was born in the town of Groton, Tompkins county, N.Y., in 1803.  She married Mr. Southworth November 1, 1828, and reared a family of six children, three of whom, together with her husband, still survive her.  In March, 1840 , Mr. and Mr. Southworth collected together their wordly possessions and started, with their family, behind an ox team, from Groton for the wilds of Tioga county.  After an uneventful journey they arrived in Westfield township,. now Clymer, and located on the farm where they spent the golden days of their life in peace and comfort.  Mrs. Southworth experienced religion when a girl, and united with the Christian Church about forty years ago, being baptised, by Rev. J May in the crystal waters of the Jemison creek.  By her death Clymer loses one of her noblest women and the Church one of its prominent and most useful memebers, - one who had no personal ambition beyond making all with whom she came in contact feel that they had a friend in her in whom they could confide.  She was one of the pioneers of Clymer, coming into the county forty six years ago when it was a wilderness inhabited by panthers, wolves, etc.  The second day after her arrival the snow had fallen three feet deep.  As soon as they were settled in their new home, which was a log house in a little cleearing surrounded by giant trees through whose branches the wintry winds san sad requiems, Mr. Southworth and his oldest boy returned to Groton for another  load of goods, leaving behind a large dog as a guard for the wife and little ones.  On the third evening after his masster's departure the dog was let out of the house without being watched, and the next morning the animal was in Groton, a hundred miles away, begging for admittance to his old home.  The lonely hours and sleepless nights of that mother and children who had been used to anold home and plenty of friends, during the husband's and father's absence can never be fully realized, they not having seen a neighbor, nor knowing which way to go to find one, being hemmed in by woods and with only a sled-road leading to their farm.  When the sun had sunk below the western horizon and the little ones were nicely tucked away for the night, and before they awoke in the morning, Mrs. Southworth used to spin and weave for the family, doing two days work in one.  Such was the life of the pioneers.  The day before she died a granddaughter, Mrs. Nye, came to visit her, and after a long evening spent in talk, they retired, occupying the same bed, Mrs. Southworth still keeping up the conversation, and seeming to enjoy it, until urged to desist and go to sleep.  When another day had dawned the Good Shepherd had summoned her to pass beyond this fleeting scene to a world in which farewells are never spoken and where sorrow and sin and suffering are alike unknown.  The funeral rites were performed on Saturday, January 30, at the Boardman schoolhouse, by Rev. J. E. Hays, after which her remains were placed at rest in the Overlooking cemetery in the rear of the little school house where she loved to worship Him who does all things well.  The story of her life gives us a faint idea of the hardships and deprivations endured by the pioneers of the free homes of America.                Sailor R.

DOANE D D
Wellsboro Agitator - October 7, 1896
A Tragedy in Chatham Little Marsh, Oct. 5 - Our little town has had its share of excitement for the past week. Mr. D. D. Doane lost all control over his mental faculties last Monday night, and at about midnight he drove his wife and daughter, who were alone with him, out into the street. They went to the house of Mr. J. Cooper and stayed. In the morning Mr. Doane was missing. He was seen later upon his son-in-law's farm up to the marsh. About 9 a. m. he came home and inquired for his wife. She had started for her son's, at Knoxville, to stay until he got out of his mad-fit, as he was subject to them. He then went to his son's, and bade the family all good-bye, and kissed their little child, went to his house, took off his shoes, lay down straight upon his back , placed a revolver to his right temple and fired. Dr. White and others were so near that they were at his side in a few seconds, but there were only heart-beats and all was over. Mr. Doane was a man about 63 years of age. He had been subject to violent fits of temper, losing all reason at times; but the family gave little thought to them, as he would be all right in a day or two. But he at last finished the job which he had many times threatened to do.

A young man named John Hall, a son of Mr. Stephen Hall, of Chatham township, died very suddenly of heart disease last Wednesday morning.  He left home with his brother Matthias to attend court in this village as a witness, and while walking to Middlebury to catch the train, when near Mr. George Potter’s residence, near Keeneyville, he spoke to his brother, telling him he must stop.  After walking barely a step farther he fell in the road, and before his brother could raise his head he was dead.  Coroner Giles Roberts was notified, but after considering the case it was not deemed necessary to hold an inquest.  Mr. Hall was much esteemed by those who knew him.  He was about 27 years old, and was to have been married in about a month.  We understand he had been subject to similar attacks for some time.  His funeral was attended Saturday morning at 11 o’clock by the Odd Fellows, of which Order he was a member in good standing.  (Tuesday, December 7, 1875, The Wellsboro Agitator, Wellsboro, Tioga Co, Pa.)

Short, born Feb. 25, 1879, and Bessie E., born Nov. 18, 1880, died April 7, 1888.  Mr. and Mrs. Robertson resided in Sabinsville with their children and later in Chatham township.  After Mr. Robertson’s death, May 17, 1886, Mrs. Robertson remained on the farm with her children and her mother.  On Oct. 19, 1893, Mrs. Robertson and Henry Curran were married.  Mr. Curran’s farm adjoined Mrs. Curran’s and they resided on the Robertson farm for several years and then removed to Knoxville, where Mr. Curran died May 28, 1920.  After Mr. Curran’s death Mrs. Curran remained at their home until her failing sight made it advisable for her to live with others.  Her failing sight resulted in total blindness about five years ago.  Since that time she has spent the greater part of the time at her daughter’s home.  She often said that no one could be kinder to her than they all were, with a special emphasis on the tenderness of her daughter’s husband and her grandson’s wife.  Those two, while no relation, were not only willing but anxious, as they all were, to add anything to her comfort or pleasure.  Mrs. Curran through her life was ever ready to help others and more than one child found shelter and tender care at her hands.  She was a mother to more than those who called her by that loving name.  She joined the Methodist Episcopal church when sixteen years old and her life told as a Christian’s should.  Mrs. Curran died at her daughter’s home in Chatham township, May 22, 1928, of pneumonia.  The funeral was held May 25; interment in the Wormer cemetery.  She leaves beside her daughter and her husband,  one grandson, Ashley C. Short, and his wife, and one daughter and one son, two granddaughters, Mrs. Leona O. S. VanOrder, her husband and one daughter, and Sarada Short; one brother, Raymond J.

SHORT Olive
Wellsboro Agitator - February 26, 1919
Death of Olive Burrell
At her home in West Chatham, Thursday afternoon, February 10, 1919, occurred the death of Olive Short Burrell, after a life of usefulness which can only be conceived by those who knew her. Mrs. Burrell was the third daughter of Lovell and Thankful Hackett Short and was born on the Lovell Short farm on August 22, 1835 a short distance from the place of her death. Her whole life was spent in that locality and a merrier, happier girl it would have been hard to find, and the same happy, jovial spirit was hers to the very last day. Her girlhood days were spent on her father's farm amid the wealth of nature's stores which filled her life with a love for nature and God's creatures great and small. She never tired of the woods and fields and trees and birds were to her living, lovable things. Her home was always bright with flowers, birds and sunshine, all of which she loved. She was brave to toil, suffering and sorrow alike. Besides the cares of a household she found time for the many things that delight the woman heart. She spun, wove, painted, embroidered, knit, crocheted and was adept at hand work of nearly every sort, and her cookies and jumbles will never be forgotten by many. She read a great deal and kept abreast of the times far in excess of many younger people. For many years she has kept a diary, which will be a reference to her people for years to come. Until recently she could always be relied upon in sickness and death and those in trouble were sure of a friend. Many there were, who have gone to the Great Beyond, who, could they speak would tell us of the many kindnesses and words of cheer they had received from her. But as she believed "Let not the right hand know what the left hand doeth" applied to things we do here we can only speak for those living and what we have heard from those gone before. But it can be said with all safety that she never turned the worthy from her door nor spurned to give aid or comfort to those in need or trouble. She was married Jan. 1, 1856, to James W. Burrell, a carpenter and contractor, who was ofttimes away, thus leaving the management of the home in her capable hands. Mr. Burrell diedDec. 11, 1913. He was a veteran of the Civil War and while he was serving his country Mrs. Burrell kept the home and farming went on with such help as she could secure. To them were born three children, May, wife of C. V. Carpenter, who diedJune 28, 1918, Mettie, wife of A. H. Rice, Little Marsh, PA. and Wallis R., who resides on the old homestead. She leaves to mourn her death, besides these children, who will miss her more than anyone can tell: two brothers and one sister and scores of nieces and nephews who must "rise up and call her blessed" and scores of friends. We can not estimate the loss it is to her friends as although her body became weak, her council was strong and sure.

1. The Angel of Death has called Again
Iona has gone to dwell
With Jesus Christ our Savior,
Who doeth all things well.

2. She never need know the troubles,
The rest of us must bear,
Christ took his little darling
The glories of heaven to share,

3. His way is always the better way
Though often hard to see,
But, if He has willed it so
It surely is best to be.

4. The troubles and sorrows of this life
Can never bear her down,
She is well and happy in Heaven,
With a golden harp and crown.

5. Her Dear, sweet face ever had for always
A smile of purest love;
And now she waits with Jesus
To welcome us above.

6. God never meant our darling
Should dwell long here below,
She only came to Show us,
How sweet the angles grow.

My name is Judy McCreedy, maiden name Williams. I live in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan. I am writing to thank you for your wonderful, detailed, carefully researched Web Site. It is obvious you have put a lot of work into gathering the data, getting it into html format, and making sure it is accurate before posting it!  The Wormer/Hillside Cemetery Obituary Page  at http://www.joycetice.com/obitcemt/wormobit.htm has helped confirm and clarify the family history of my mother’s adoptive father, Ivan D. Southworth.

 

Background: My mother, Phyllis Southworth Williams, was adopted by Ivan Southworth, her mother’s new husband, at about 3 years of age circa 1930. He was the only father she knew, and was a strong positive influence on her life.  My mother died at age 70 in 1997. Ivan Southworth died in Detroit in 1954, before I was born. He had no other legal children; there were 2 stepsons, who were my grandmother’s sons / Phyllis’ half-brothers.

The obituaries confirm the background I heard:

 

-        Ivan’s mother, Nellie Garner, died shortly after childbirth in 1889

 

-        Ivan’s cousin, Iva Jean Curtiss, was born within days or weeks of Ivan. They grew up almost as brother and sister.

 

-        Iva died at age 17 of yellow jaundice (we now know that is a symptom, but that was not known in 1906)

 

-        Ivan’s father died when he was 15

When Ivan adopted my mother, her middle name was changed to Jean after Iva Jean. My mother also had a photograph of her in her effects; I will have to look for that when I have time.  Reading the detailed obituary was very special, because I know it would have meant a lot to my mother. It is nice to know that the person my mother was named after was ‘an estimable young lady’.  It’s also nice to have the information about the Southworths in Clymer/Westfield. I have started to research the Southworth line for the Southworths prior to Dixon Southworth. As I find out more solid information, I will share it with you. The trail seems to be pointing to Dixon’s grandfather, William Southworth, having emigrated from Connecticut to Nova Scotia as a ‘New England Planter’ circa 1760.

Again, thank you.

Sincerely,

Judy McCreedy
